Send a letter to your local MP to safeguard supply management
Agropur believes in the importance of supply management, now more than ever. Please visit our new microsite and support our Canadian dairy sector by sending a letter, pre-prepared for you, to your local Member of Parliament.
Why has Agropur launched this microsite?
To protect supply management from political pressure exerted on the Canadian government to dismantle the system.
Why is the microsite launching now?
